Wound Care

Wound Care Specialist on Staff
Patty Hurst, AP-WOCN is on staff at Ozark Surgical Group to help treat non-healing wounds. Patty is an Advanced Practice Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nurse Practitioner, and we are fortunate to have her. There are only three AP-WOCNs in the entire state of Arkansas!   


Non-Healing Wound Treatment

Ozark Surgical Group has partnered with Baxter Regional Wound Healing Center to aggressively treat non-healing wounds. A wound is considered non-healing if it doesn’t heal appropriately within an acceptable time frame and fails to respond to debridement, dressing changes, and antibiotics. Tissue hypoxia commonly prohibits wound healing. Those with cardiovascular disease, compromised blood flow, and diabetes are at an increased risk of developing a non-healing wound. Increased protein intake and increased oxygen to the affected area can aid the healing process. If needed, hyperbaric oxygen therapy is used to force high concentrations of oxygen to the hypoxic area.
